Link to Style Arc Juliet shirt pattern here
I made a test version using some inexpensive self stripe stretch cotton shirting and fortunately the rest of the pattern pieces had no problems. I made a size 10 with no alterations so can't really complain too much!
Despite my initial disappointment with the pattern there are some good things about it, other than the style;
- smaller seam allowances on the collar making it much easier to handle
- whole collar and stand is assembled as one unit before attaching to the shirt body
The back is supposed to be slightly longer than the front, but I didn't have enough fabric to do that. I also didn't think at all about making the stripe pattern symmetrical on the fronts, but I don't think it's that noticeable in an all white shirt.
I really haven't done a good job tying it here now I see the photos so I will pay attention to that when I wear it in real life. It would be better to have the tie nearer to the centre as shown in the line drawing.
Now I have confidence in the pattern I do plan to make it again although somewhat ironically I may extend the sleeve to full length which would mean shortening the cuff piece again!
